#EndSars: IGP orders immediate National re-organisation of SARS

Reacting to the  on going online campaign for the disbandment of SARS with hashtag #EndSars, The inspector general of police Idris Kpotun Ibrahim on Monday, December 4, released an official press statement ordering an immediate re-organization of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) across the country.

The IGP in a statement read:

”The Nigeria police force has observed the recent trends of event in the social media on the #ENDSARSNOW and the controversy being generated by the innuendos from the allegations and other misconceptions as it concerns the operational roles and activities of the special anti-robbery squad, a detachment of the force.


‘Undoubtedly SARS have been doing very well in fighting violent crimes such as armed robbery kidnappings and cattle rustling in the country in the recent time and this has resulted in drastic reduction of incidents of the mentioned violent crimes nationwide.

”However, the inspector general of police Ibrahim K. Idris NPM was concerned with public interest and the need to reposition the SARS for more efficiency and effective service delivery to all Nigerians and ensure that the SARS operates based on international core value of policing with integrity and make sure the rule of law prevails in the operations and activities of the outfit.

”The police zonal commands, state commands and divisions will continue to operate anti-crime units/sections, crime prevention and control squads and teams imperative to prevent and detect crimes and criminalities in their area of responsibilities, and other crack squads necessary to sustain law and order and protection of life and properties in their Area of responsibilities (AOR). ”Federal anti-robbery squad will now exist and operate in the state and zonal commands under the commissioner of police at the force headquarters. ”A federal SARS commander of a rank of chief superintendent of police and not below superintendent of police will be in charge of FSARS in state and zonal commands across the country.

”All commissioners of police have been directed by the inspector general of police to comply with this directive with immediate effect and warn their personnel not to pose as SARS operatives. ”The IGP X-Squad has been mandated to go round the Commands and Police Formations nationwide to ensure strict compliance and apprehend any erring police officer.

”Furthermore, a new training program to be organized by the Force in collaboration with some CSOs, local and international NGOs, and other human rights organizations on core police duties, observant of human rights and handling, care and custody of suspects have been directed by the inspector general of police for all federal SARS personnel nationwide with immediate effect.

”However, aggrieved members of the public who have any complaint in the past or present of violation of their rights by any SARS personnel anywhere in the country are to report through any of the following channels for investigation and further actions.

However, the Nigerian Police force has maintained that SARS are doing fantastically well despite the call for the anti robery unit to be scraped. A campaign which has generated over half a million tweets and retweets within just two days.

What is your take on this? Is the Nigerian police your friend?
